    Today is Green Monday, an online shopping event that is similar to Cyber Monday, allowing customers another chance to buy gifts for the holidays at Black Friday prices and get their items shipped before Christmas.

    Most major retailers are running Green Monday deals today, and we've rounded up some of the best and most notable deals in this article. These include HomePod for $250 at Target, an iPad mini 4 for $250 at Best Buy, all-new Anker discount codes on Amazon, and more.

    Target

    Target today has brought back one of the best Black Friday discounts, offering shoppers the chance to get Apple's HomePod for just $249.99, down from $349.99. This is the same price that Best Buy had on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, and another great opportunity to buy Apple's smart speaker at its all-time-low price.

    Target also has the 9.7-inch iPad from early 2018 (32GB, Wi-Fi only) for $249.99, down from $329.99. Amazon matches this price in Gold and Space Gray color options, and as of today these are the lowest-ever prices for this version of the iPad and the best available online.

    Amazon

    Otherwise on Amazon, there are the usual collection of Gold Box deals with some notable inclusions for Green Monday. You can save on a variety of networking products, with the Netgear Orbi Wall Plug Mesh Wi-Fi System for $199.99, down from $299.99.

    [​IMG]

    Another Gold Box offers savings on wireless charging mats from Samsung and iOttie. The main deal here is for iOttie's 7.5W iON Wireless Qi-Certified Charging Pad for $29.95, down from $39.95 in multiple colors.

    As usual, one of the best Amazon sales centers upon Anker's accessories, this time including Lightning cables, battery packs, surge protectors, wall chargers, and wireless chargers. We've listed every item part of Anker's Gold Box for Green Monday below:

    [​IMG]
    [*]PowerCore Lightning 3 pack (3,6,10 ft) - $19.99, down from $27.99

    [*]PowerWave 7.5W Wireless Charger - $31.97, down from $45.99 Lastly, Amazon has Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro in multiple sizes and colors at a discount today. You can get the 256GB + Wi-Fi version of the 2017 tablet for $669.99, down from $799.99. 512GB + Wi-Fi is available as well in Silver and Space Gray for $849.99, down from $999.00. Both prices are currently the best available online for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

    Best Buy

    At Best Buy, you can get the iPad mini 4 (128GB, Wi-Fi) for $249.99, down from $399.99 in Gold, Silver, and Space Gray. This is currently the best price available online for Apple's three-year old iPad mini 4, and it's matching the same sale price seen for the tablet during Black Friday at Best Buy and Target.

    [​IMG]

    Best Buy also has the HomePod on sale for $279.99, down from $349.99. This isn't quite as good as Target's current $249.99 sale price on the smart speaker, which we mentioned above.

    Apple

    Even Apple has joined in on Green Monday deal offers today, with a few discounts on Beats by Dre headphones. Although Apple's sales on Beats are typically beaten out by numerous other companies, today marks one of the few times that Apple is actually offering the lowest-possible prices for these headphones available online today, and sometimes matching popular retailers like B&H Photo and Amazon.

    [​IMG]
    [*]Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones - $239.95, down from $299.95 (matched at B&H Photo)
    [*]Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones (Beats Pop Collection) - $239.95, down from $299.95

    [*]BeatsX Earphones - $99.95, down from $119.95 (matched at Kohl's, B&H Photo, and Amazon)

    B&H Photo

    B&H Photo is celebrating Green Monday with discounts on the 2017 models of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. These savings reach to as much as $330 off original prices of both Wi-Fi Only and Wi-Fi + Cellular models, representing the lowest-ever prices for every iPad Pro listed below. One of the best markdowns in this sale is for the 512GB Wi-Fi only model, which has hit its lowest-ever price today of $799.99, down from a previous discount of $899.00, and from an original price of $1,149.00.

    I'm waiting for the Periwinkle Wednesday, Mauve Thursday and Aquamarine Saturday deals personally.

    (Just me who's never heard of 'Green Monday'?)

    Green Monday has been a thing for ages. At least the last 10 years anyway. It’s an online-only thing.

    I got a refurbished homepod at best buy on thanksgiving, so i got an extra like $20 off, getting around a $120 discount. While it is definitely Apple’s least functional product, I’d say it’s actually their most charming. It has a really nice design to it—it’s aesthetically far far superior to Echo in a variety of ways. Siri’s voice is far more pleasant and nice than Alexa’s is. The sound quality is also decent—much better than the Echo’s—definitely has an impressive bass output for the size

    I bought ours quite a ways back with some deal on ebay. I didn't think I would like it as much as I do and I didn't think we would use it as much as we do. I hope Apple allocates some extra development towards the speaker to unlock more capabilities in the future.

    I'm tempted to send one to my sister at this price...

    Never heard Apple matching price of their own product from other retailers before. Maybe Tim is trying to rake more dollar before the end of the year, so Apple can report a better figure than sales. What's next cutting out expenses just to make those greedy investors happy.

    To me, I dont really see as much missing functionality as everyone else is claiming. All I use a smart speaker liek this for is for alarms, timers, and music queries. Maybe in the future that can also expand to homekit. I think people just hate on the homepod for the price, which is fair. Should cost around $200–250

    This would have been better if it was offered last Monday as I am sure shipping this week and next week would be crazy. I'll pass and wait to see what happens after Christmas.

    Just keep the prices lower for the entire holiday season. Enough with the green and black and cyber days. In fact, have days like this throughout the year to encourage buying them. People are going to buy for Christmas anyway!

    I’ve heard that if something ships by the 20th, you will get it by Christmas.

    The Anker lists are the same price as always. Double checked on camelcamelcamel as well. Unsure what the 'reduced' price is from.

    More like "Today is just another opportunity day to get people to spend their money on junk they don't really need except we made up a special name for it day."

    999$ for the i5 Mini is fantastic. I bought one on Black Friday as it was my entry point on price for that model.

    Only thing above that's priced fairly is the HomePod ($250). For the price and size it's excellent and on par with what others are charging for inferior sound.

    Agreed, price is the main source of hate. The thing sounds INCREDIBLE, the bass is amazing for such a small footprint. HomeKit requests work on ours.

    $280 for the iPad and $525 for the Pro seems more than reasonable to me personally.

    edit- Weird. They didn't mention those in their write up. I just saw those prices when looking around Best Buy earlier and assumed they were mentioned.
